Brookens Library announces the Summer Faculty Library Associate program for faculty members interested in integrating information literacy and library services into a new or existing course. The purpose of the program is to create intensive collaboration between faculty and the library, to illustrate the effectiveness of information literacy instruction in improving student outcomes (specifically as it relates to the UIS Goals and Learning Outcomes for Baccalaureate Education). This collaboration will use the Association of College and Research Libraries' Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to develop instructional materials and activities to share with other librarians and faculty, and to advance the use of library services on campus.
Duration: Takes place during the UIS Summer Session
Stipend: The Library Associate is awarded a $1500 stipend. He or she will devote the equivalent of 40 hours of work during the Summer Session.
Eligibility: All full-time faculty members and instructors at UIS are eligible. Courses at any level will be considered.
Deadline: All applications must be received by February 26th, 2018.
